Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Monsanto’s losing bet on GM sugar beets has bitter repercussions
Grist - 10/20/2010.
By Tom Philpott – In 2008, the USDA approved planting of Monsanto's Roundup Ready sugar beet, equipped with a gene that allows them to withstand unlimited doses of Monsanto's Roundup herbicide. The sugar trade promised to be a big money maker for genetically modified (GM) seed giant Monsanto.

Portland Press Herald - 10/20/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Due to the death of a friend, Maine apple guru John Bunker will not be able to attend this Saturday's Great Maine Apple Day, an event he helped found. As a result, the organizers have been scrambling since Thursday to find other experts to fill in the gaps left by Bunker's absence. "Thankfully John's got a lot of contemporaries now," said Andrew Marshall, who directs educational programs for the Maine Organic Gardeners and Farmers Association, where the event will be held.

Now multiply that by a few thousand products, and you have some idea of the monumental task facing George Parmenter, corporate responsibility manager for Hannaford.
Out, invasive species!
Bangor Daily News - 10/19/2010.
